Our MA in Translation has a strong focus on practice, in how you are both taught and assessed. You will learn through a mix of small tutorials specific to your language specialism and larger integrated lectures. Whichever of our seven languages you focus on you will become part of our wider postgraduate translation community.

There are three pathways to choose from. The Specialist Translation pathway is designed to prepare you for a career in the translation industry. The Research pathway takes a more academic approach and would suit anyone looking to pursue a research career. If you specialise in one of our European languages you might consider the Literary pathway which will focus your attention on the translation of prose, poetry and dramatic texts with encouragement to express your creativity. The Modern Languages Department also operates the Centre for Translating Cultures, an active community of staff and postgraduate students that we hope you will become part of.

Teaching is split between methodology and practice, to give you a broad choice of potential careers. As well as top academic staff you will be taught by practising translators who have an inside track on the industry.

Language areas

• Chinese language
• European languages

Pathways

• Specialist translation pathway
• Research pathway
• Literary pathway (European languages only)

Learning and teaching

Most of your classes will be small group seminars where you will explore both the methodology behind translation and its application to practical situations. As well as seminars specific to your language you will attend larger group lectures that bring together all specialisms as a single translation community. Inside your seminars you will learn collaboratively through presentations and round table discussions. Outside your seminars you will have the opportunity to talk to your tutors on a one-to-one basis as they support your learning throughout the year.

You will learn from professionals who are experienced in working in the translation industry and will receive advice on how to present yourself to employers in your chosen field.

Established in 1987, this very popular programme is the oldest Masters degree in Middle East Politics in the UK.

As a student here you will examine key issues in Middle Eastern domestic and regional politics, developing a critical understanding of the patterns of state-society interaction in the region, the processes of state formation, the constitution of social and political forces, and an awareness of the different perspectives and debates within this field.

This programme particularly explores the meaning of democracy within an Arabo-Islamic setting, developing your critical awareness of debates about democracy as well as the strategies and dynamics of political liberation in the Arab world. Our discussions will be located within discourses and counter-discourses on Orientalism, Occidentalism, Islamism, secularism, and civil society; and we will apply the concepts and methodologies discussed to concrete situations through our discussion of specific case studies from the Arab Maghrib and Mashriq.

To add a further dynamic to your studies you will also have the opportunity to take a beginners level introductory course in Persian, Arabic or Kurdish as part of this Masters programme.
